M and G love, love, love to take baths. Before G was born, M would bring in hundreds (slight exaggeration) of little plastic figures into the bath to play. And while she still does it, they occasionally take baths together and the little pieces make me nervous for G.
Here are some of our favorite bath activities for both kiddos:
Glow Stick Bath
Grab a couple of packs of glow sticks the next time you're at the dollar store. Drop them in the water and turn off the lights. Your kids will love their technicolor tub!
Catch the Color Cube
Use a drop of food coloring in each well of an ice cube tray to make colorful ice. Drop them in a tub and see if your tots can catch them before they melt into the water!
Shaving Cream Paint
Using a silicone muffin pan, squirt some shaving cream in each section. Add a drop or two of food coloring and give your tots a paint brush. They can paint the tub, each other, or themselves!
The kids love these activities and I can usually sneak in a good hair wash (M's least favorite thing on the planet!) before she even notices!
